What's For Dinner: Dairy Free Soy Free Zesty Crockpot Better BBQ Chicken & Mashed Potatoes

UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.

I've made crockpot dairy & soy free BBQ Chicken & a form of mashed potatoes before, but these are different recipes. I ended up liking this BBQ recipe more and these mashed potatoes more, my husband agrees.

Zesty Crockpot BBQ Chicken


6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce (I used Garland Jacks Hickory Spice)
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing (I used Hidden Valley Farmhouse Originals)
1/4 cup brown sugar (I used dark brown)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce (I used Bi-Lo Brand Southern Homes)

*Check all your ingredients for dairy & soy.


Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the barbecue sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.

Pour over the chicken.

Cover, and cook 3 to 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low.

I then Shred the chicken with two forks.

These are more traditional mashed potatoes. I just eyed the coconut milk & coconut oil, but I think these measuments are close.

Dairy Free Soy Free Mashed Potatoes


8 potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 cup coconut milk (I used canned)
1/2 cup coconut oil
salt to taste
pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of water to boil; add potatoes, and boil until soft, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Drain, and place in a large bowl.

Combine potatoes with coconut milk, coconut oil, salt, and pepper.

Mash with a potato masher to your desired consistency.
